Does anyone know where one may purchase GFCI receptacles in Thailand?

Every electrical shop together with all the usual suppliers DoHome, Global House, HomePro, ThaiWatsudu etc.
Most Safe-T-Cut distribution panels have one already fitted.

I have never seen a GFCI receptical in Thailand, you may be better installing a GFI breaker in the distribution board or alternately make one up with a small plastic enclosure with a GFI breaker and socket combination, any specific reason you wanted one?

Expanding the OP's question

If I have a device that has a built in "safety panel" is it still necessary to have a separate GFCI Receptacle to plug it into ?

If yes, then where do you find a GFCI Recepacle that accepts a "european" style plug

No. But, some things should not have a GFCI like the refridgerator/freezer
